Chuck, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?   It’s 2000 and I just graduated from College. I knew I loved computers, and I got my degree in Marketing. I didn’t have any money, so I went to work for a startup. When shit hit the fan a few years in, I got canned along with a lot of other people. So I found another job in Marketing. I moved up the corporate ladder to a senior marketing position but was never really happy.

During this time, I kept tinkering on my computer. I’d make websites, which I thought then were amazing, creative, and innovative ”” but I know now they were actually pretty bad!

Anyways, I was moonlighting as a web designer with a dream of starting my own business.

After years of doing more and more websites, I created my own company and aptly named it after myself. Not very creative, I know. A year later, I got smart and renamed my company to Rareview. But I still had a corporate job.

When I built up enough clients, or at least the perception of enough clients, I quit my day job and have never looked back.

The first year was scary, exhilarating, and exhausting.
